Wonder Boy

This is the one that started it all! A true Sega classic, Wonder Boy has seen various styles of play over the years. The original game was an arcade hit and received a wonderful port on the Master System. Axes, skateboards, and fruit! What more could you ask for in a game?

Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair

Sega seemed to have no worries keeping track of the continuity of the Wonder Boy series. As told in our complete retrospective, the games hop around from the original series to the Monster World line without much regard for keeping things clear. The first game to use the “monster” tag was a platformer that bore little resemblance to the action/RPG titles that would follow. Originally released in arcades, Monster Lair (bearing the title Wonder Boy III) came to the Genesis in a fashion that left much to be desired. As ports go – especially Westone ports – this one was especially disappointing.
